Hello everyone, Tortoise here! :)
Here are some updates to Leo, he's somewhat bashful at the moment, as you will see...
So here we are as of yesterday, 2/9/13.
I also love how this is like a coloring book, stitching the outlines then filling in. I find it very enjoyable, and I am willing to guess everyone stitching the Manifesto will have just as much fun doing it this way. :) One must ask, what is the stitch count of Manifesto? I presume it is larger than Dutch Beauty in size right? :D
And maybe I can ask all of your help in this endeavor that I am also doing. I am "attempting" to stitch practice wise, all the stitches that the Scarlet Letter patterns use. I know of the Queen Stitch, which I am excited to try. But what else is there? Rice Stitch, Eyelet, Satin, Montenegrin... Can anyone else name them, or even our dear Marsha has a list somewhere of all the stitches she has in the patterns over the years? Of course, the ulterior motive is not only to expand my pathetic stitching repertoire, but to be able to do the stitches necessary for the patterns to be completed and to also, dare I say, stitch a needlework casket like those of Thistle Needle. I shan't say more, I fear I may burst all your cc's to the max. (Haven't used mine yet, thankfully - the budget simply isn't there!)
Hugs and Love,
